2018 Founders Ball

About The Brooklyn Hospital Foundation’s Founders Ball

On Thursday evening, October 18, The Brooklyn Hospital Foundation will welcome friends and supporters at our signature fundraising event, one of the largest in Brooklyn! Since 1998 the Foundation has raised money to fund critical clinical advancements. Last year's Gala financed the Simbionix GI-BRONCH Mentor System, a tool that is used by residents and physicians to practice procedures as well as a transformative, hospital-wide patient education and entertainment portal that will serve every patient bed.

On October 18, we will celebrate 5 exceptional individuals who are making tremendous contributions to the community: Earl D. Weiner; Nelson Menezes, MD; David Schwartz of Slate Property Group; as well as Srinivas Kesanakurthy, MD and Samin Sharma, MD of the Brooklyn Hospital Center-Mount Sinai Heart Comprehensive Cardiac Care Program.

All guests will be feted royally at our cocktail reception and dinner and have fun at the Casino!
